    5 Quickfire Didcot Facts

    1. Aged
      People have been moving to Didcot in its various forms since the Iron Age (800 BC) meaning the town is the best part of 3,000 years old. It must be the Cotswold’s air because it doesn’t look half its age!
    2. Name Change
      But it wasn’t always called Didcot. Originally the area was known as Wibaldinton, after a local chieftain, making it ‘Wigbald’s people’s town. ‘Dicot’ most likely domes from King Didan, a Saxon ruler.
    3. My Bad!
      Robert D’Albini gave the Manor of Dicot to King Henry II as an apology for hitting him with a stone during the Siege of Bedford Castle. The town was in the wars itself during the Anarchy, a period of English civil war when King Stephen had to defend his throne from Empress Matilda.
    4. Nice & Normal
      Didcot is actually decidedly average. That is in no way an insult, but a statistical fact. In 2015 a group of statisticians measured the responses from polls, collated data and found Dicot mostly matched the national median considering things like marriage, age, income, employment, property ownership, opinions, experiences, etc, making it the most average town in Britain. At the time the Mayor of Didcot (probably wearing a nice grey suit) said the findings were ‘tremendous’. Sometimes it’s good to be normal!
    5. COD
      In 1914 while waiting for a train at Didcot train station, a young army officer realised Didcot was the perfect place for a Central Ordinance Depot. In the centre of the country, with good transport links, away from major cities and not near the coast (easier for the enemy to reach). The base eventually covered 600 acres with everything from bandages to bombs and claimed it could get any piece of kit to any serviceman in the UK within 48 hrs (like an early Amazon for squaddies). COD Didcot played a major role in preparations for the D-Day landings in 1944.
